It's fun, fun, fu all weekend Pine Festival peaks this weekend

BRISBANE has its Warana Festival, Rockhampton Capricana Springtime Festival ... the Capricorn Coast is famous for its annual Pineapple Festival. Traditionally pineapples have played an im• portant role in the Coast's economy. Farms have been devoted to growing pineapples for at least 50 years. The first festival was held to commemorate the season's crop, this is still an important aspect of the festival, but is also now looked upon as a special occasion for all Capricorn Coast people. Eight jam-packed days peak this weekend, firstly on Saturda:' with the grand parade through Yeppoon's main street and culminating on Sunday with Surfside '88. The festival started on Sunday, September 25 with Woody's 1000 trials. Eight three-man teams tested speed, strength and co-ordination to advance into Saturday's final. Defending their title on Saturday at 2pm in Beaman Park will be the Bungundarra Raiders who qualified in the fastest time (4.18mins) on Sunday. Qualifying second was Diving Specials (4.36mins) and third, Yeppoon Seagulls (4.43mins). The remaining contenders include Homerrtakers Tiles, LSES, Sapphire Diggers, Spastic Welfare League and Whites Travel Team. Festivities started to hot up on Wednesday with the opening of the Garden and Trade Fair in Beaman Park at 9.30am. The Coast's best gardens and streets were scrutinised in the afternoon and the town's best dressed shop windows were also judged on Wednesday. Businesses were putting up the finishing touches on Tuesday, trying to capture this year's festival theme ... we've come a long way in 200 years. Fruitgrowers Association chairman Peter Hutton officially opened the festival and the _ Capricorn Coast Society of Arts exhibition on Wednesday night in Yeppoon Town Hall. ••-•- Pets of all shapes, sizes, breeds and colour congregated in Beaman Park yesterday (Thursday) for the pet parade. Awards included the most loveable pet and most repulsive. Art, craft, wine, cheeses and a fashion parade in Savemore Centre set the scene for Thursday night. The Mill Gallery supplied the art and craft while Gadabouts sponsored the fashion parade. Hair fashions featured "Directions '88" by Salon 24. Yeppoon Town Hall opens between 9am to 5pm today and tomorrow (Saturday) - closing Saturday at 3pm - to give all Coast people the chance to see work by local art society members. Friday's fun starts at 6.30pm when the Trinidad Calypso is set to play in the James Street Mardi Gras. A mammoth fireworks display at 7.30pm will feature about S2000 of colourful and exciting fireworks. Trinidad Calypso will play into the night.

A wave of activity will overtake Yeppoon tomorrow (Saturday) as the Coast prepares for the parade. Floats, representatives of many Coast groups and organisations will congregate in Queen Street at midday. Entertainment starts at 9.30am with a fashion parade in Savemore by Gadabouts. In the main street, stalls, raffles and give-aways should be a crowd pleaser. Signalling the start to competitionswill be the junior wheelbarrow race at 10.30am. Contestants must be between 12 and 17-years-old and start at the Railway Hotel and make their way to the Strand Hotel with compulsory refreshment stops- to drink pineapple juice - along the way.

The seniors get their chance at 1 lam to win cash prizes in the wheelbarrow race starting from the Railway Hotel to the Strand with the usual refreshments. The pineapple parade starts at 1pm moving alongAnzac Parade into Normanby Street and James Street making a u-turn at Yeppoon Railway Station.

THE newly-formed National Party Cooee Bay branch held its inaugural meeting on Saturday, September 24 at Bayview Tower. The meeting was held to form and elect officers of the new branch. Industrial Affairs Minister Vince Lester was guest speaker and chaired the meeting during the election of officers. Mr Lester talked about many aspects of the government's recent activities. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton strongly supported Mr Lester's report about Premier Mike Ahern's showing in parliament. Other guests included Broadsound Electorate Council chairman Ron Bannish and representatives from Yeppoon and Emil Park branches. Stan Collard moved a vote of thanks to the various speakers and congratulated the branch on its formation.

The following people were elected: chairman, Cr Maurie Webb; vice chairman, Bill Thomson; secretary, John Chapman and treasurer Tony Rowe; committee members, Bill Grayson, Eddie Engel, Rob Thomasson and Cr Roy Wall. Cr Webb said the meeting had been excellent and the group's future looked to be very active. Cr Webb said that it was a happy group of people at the meeting and he was looking forward to the first branch meeting in the Cooee Bay Hall in November.

St Faith's reunion NINETY-EIGHT past pupils from St Faith's will congregate in Yeppoon this Sunday to recall old times and catch up on old friends. This is the third time a reunion has been held on the Coast. However past pupils have met in Rockhampton since the school closed during the '60s. The reunion takes the form of a communion service in St James' Anglican Church followed by lunch at Kanangra Restaurant. Organisers said 104 people had responded to the reunion and 98 were past pupils. In the three Coast reunions held this has been the best response, 48 being the previous best. The reunion has been held on the Sunday closest to St Faith's feast day ... October 6. St Faith's opened in the early 1920s with seven high school-aged girls but financial strains caused its closure in 1966. The school, survived a war, and was used by Sij George's Orphanage when America occupied the Rockhampton orphanage. Past pupils will come from New Zealand, Brisbane, Darling Downs, Longreach, Bowen, Rockhampton and Yeppoon to attend the reunion.

October CLEAN WATER FOR COAST FULFILLSl;16eegEth42; rcfoas411 Spti t

"THE provision of clean water for the Capricorn Coast through the installation of a water filtration plant costing S4.8 million is the fulfilment of an impossible dream as far as the Capricorn Coast is concerned," Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said this week. "Dirty water has been a major deterrent to the upgrading of Yeppoon as a first grade residential and retirement area. It has depressed real estate values and assisted to create a backwater image that must be dispelled," he

"I discussed the issue with then Premier Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen who indicated that something would have to be done. "A week before the poll, at my insistence, Sir Joh visited the council and committed the government to a Si million assistance over and

said. "The tourism industry has carried the ball and chain because of the dirtywater. No tourist wants to see discoloured water in the wash basin or pollute his scotch with rotting vegetative sediment. It just isn't on in 1988.'

special S2.4 million assistance loan from the State Government. Shire accountant Denis Murphy said council was given a special interest and redemption holiday for three years. The redemption means repayments are due and payable from June 30, 1991 but council has already started raising the money through marginal rises in water rates: Mr Murphy said ratepayers wouldn't suddenly be hit with one huge rate rise to cope with repayments but gradual increases would be charged from this financial year. "In order to take up this payment as soon as possible and take advantage of the State Government loan, council has created a loan repayment reserve at the adoption of the 1987/88 budget," he said. "Each year council will make a payment to that reserve fund until payments are due. Then the reserve account will be drawn on each year to reduce the actual repayments." Cr Bowen said the water switch on today (Friday), at Water Park Creek, would be officially performed by Finance Minister Brian Austin.

Community spirit mows down grass COMMUNITY spirit resulted in Yeppoon Day Care Centre's overgrown grass problems being cleaned up. Coast resident Ian Stanley came to the centre's aid - off his own bat - and cleared more than half the adjoining block. . Proprietors Ann and Ross Dickson said they had intended to clear the land but had hoped Livingstone Shire Council would be prompted into clearing the land as a special case. "Mr Stanley would have cleared almost half an acre without beitg asked," Mrs Dickson said. "Cr Maurie Webb has said he would try and fix the situation but the job urgently needed being done. "The need was urgent because snakes and ( -"ter creatures could have endangered the \....1dren in our care." Mr Stanley said he had cleared the land to ensure snakes and fires wouldn't endanger the centre. He said it needed doing. His kind gesture was said to typify many Coast people who help out in the community often without thanks but the Dickson's said they more than appreciated his efforts.

THE new water treatment plant, officially opened today, signals a better quality of life for all Capricorn Coast residents. Livingstone Shire chairman Cr John Bowen said the improved quality of life includes the health, industry and every-day aspect of living. It could also mean council will be in the position to review the whole water scheme and make changes including lifting present water restrictions. Cr Bowen said consultants Ullman and Nolan had said it would only take four days for residents to notice a difference in the water coming from their taps. "The new plant has the capacity to double the Coast's water flow," he said. However, shire engineer Pat Murphy said residents could expect times when the quality Iropped. Years of sedimentation in the pipes ill dislodge from time-to-time and make its way out. The S3.7 million water treatment plant can pump 250 litres per second (18 megalitres per day) and is part of the total upgrading of the Capricorn Coast water supply scheme. In the past four years council has spent S7.5 million to improve the quality and quantity of water. Apart from the treatment plant council has installed 20.5km of pipe between Water Park Creek and Yeppoon. A further 5.7km will be installed ill the next year. Mr Murphy said a pump station was installed at St Faith's reservoir in Yeppoon and 3km pipe in the Etnu Park distribution system, a rising main and gravity mains after the Meikieville Hill system and a control weir at Water Park Cieek. The treatment plant is based on a direct filtration system with a sedimentation tank for pre-treatment when necessary. A flash mixing unit is incorporated where a coagulant with pH correction is added to incoming water and then depending on the water's thickness, the dosed water will pass to the sedimentation tank or directly to the filters. The sedimentation tank is used for thick water. Two compartments in the tank - one for floculation and the other settling - process the water and the settled water passed to the filter units. Mr Murphy said under normal operations the dosed water would pass directly to the filters where the micro floc is removed. "The filtered water is then delivered to the clear water tank where chlorine is added for disinfection and the pH is again corrected," he said. "The filter is made up of graded gravels, ids and anthracite (non-bitumous coal)." '`.--Sludge produced from the sedimentation tank and back-washing the filters will be emptied into the lagoons. After a settling period, clear water is returned to the plant's head and the dewatered sludge removed for landfill. Mr Murphy said ihe improved water quality would not only result in a better quality of water for Capricorn Coast residents but also reduce the number of poor water supply incidences. To pay for the system council has taken out a

above the S1.3 million normal subsidy making a total commitment of S2.3 million for the Government towards a cost of S4.8 million for the huge plant. "Subsequent to the election Livingstone Shire Council put forward an excellent submission to cabinet. I had this submission supported by 10 doctors in the area who demonstrated some health concerns with dirty water, and cabinet approval was obtained," he said.

FIFTY-FIVE people sat down to "good old-. fashioned" Australian tucker during Pioneers and People's Day on Saturday. The crowd, including six pioneers' descendants, enjoyed liberal helpings of bullock and jumbuck, damper and billy tea followed by pavlova and apple-pie at the Strand Hotel. Livingstone Shire Bicentennial committee president Cr Brian Dorey and Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton officially presented six pioneers' descendants, representing many facets of Coast industries, during the luncheon. The oldest awardee was Jack Broome, 95. Mr Broome's grandfather owned grazing land north of Yeppoon called Woodlands. Graham, Margaret and Sarah Rudd can trace their lineage back to the Ross family. However, Graham Rudd's father was an executive director of Walter Reid. It was his grandfather who married Robert Ross' daughter Kirsty. The Ross family were Central Queensland graziers last century. Livingstone Shire Cr Duncan McDonald was also awarded with a certificate. Cr McDonald's grandfather migrated from Scotland in 1860 to search for gold, he finally settled at Ness Park in 1871. He was also on the Gogango Divisional Board, as chairman for a while, before Livingstone Shire Council was formed. Vick Atherton is James Atherton's descendent. James Atherton pioneered Mt Hedlow Station which is back from Mt Jim Crow. From farming to fishing ... representing this industry was Joanne Smalley. Her grandfather helped pioneer the industry in this area. Long time resident Bill Coxon's family retired from Longreach to Emu Park in 1816. His family had the first wine and spirit business in Rockhampton. Annie Brown (represented by Joyce Hinton because of illness), still lives in the family's original slab house. The Brown family have been part of the Coast's pioneering history for

Council refusal to Shave-ice cream LIVINGSTONE Shire Council has once again opted away from outside vendors operating businesses on the beach. Renard Marketing Pty Ltd applied to council for a licence to sell a shave-ice cream service on all Coast beaches. Dobbyn and Partners (for the applicants) said the service would be conducted from a Honda three-wheeled motorcycle towing a small trailer. The trailer would hold a shave-ice cream machine and ancillary equipment. Health surveyor John Harmswortlt said council by-laws prohibit vehicles on beaches, except for launching boats. He recommended that shave-ice products could tc) sold through an existing established business. Council passed a motion knocking back Renard Marketing Pry Ltd's application but said it could consider the Surf Lifesaving Association selling shave- ice from kiosks within existing clubhouses.

many years. The last to receive an award was Henry Findlay, son of Andrew Knight Findlay. The Findlay family was the first to open a big retail centre. The lunch followed the bicentennial vintage car rally. The car rally was organised by the Capricornia Historic Motor Club. Vintage cars from many eras attracted a large and interested crowd of onlookers.

CCTO disappointed council has not given commitment to centre THE Capricorn Coast Tourist Organisation has announced its disappointment with Living- s stone Shire Council's reply to the organisation's budget submission. Last July's submission sought funds to assist.. in construction of the new Coast information centre and was the main discussion topic at last Tuesday's meeting. CCTO chairman Brian Hooper said members were extremely disappointed council had not, to date, committed any funds for the centre. "We have been more or less promised some funding by the shire's tourism and development committee, subject to council land sales being successful," he said.. "This commitment was made by Livingstone Shire Cr John. Bowen at the CCTO'S annual general meeting last month. "We acknowledge that the council is doing a good job with Expo and are only too ready to give credit where it is due." Mr Hooper said it had been difficult to accept council's attitude towards the Coast's new information centre at the Ross Creek round-

YEPPOON Bowls Club held an over 60s play the under 60s on Saturday.

Next Sunday, October 2, Athelstane will play for the Pineapple Shield at Yeppoon in an afternoon match.

Steady maintenance for service THE Blue Nursing Service (Capricorn Coast) held its annual general meeting recently. Following, in order, are reports from director Rev Nyree Svenson, nursing superintendent Jan Robinson and women's auxiliary president Beryl Watson. Rev Svenson said her 1987/88 annual report represents 15 years of operation as a domiciliary service on the Capricorn Coast. The year has not been one of change but of steady maintenance of the service we proudly provide. The ongoing work of the staff, the office bearers and the auxiliary has been carried out with care and devotion and great concern for the patient population of the Coast. We are thankful to those people who extended themselvesbeyond the required time to make the doorknock appeal successful and not the failure it might otherwise have been. To all those who have supported the doorknock we again say thank you. Members of the committee have taken on individual tasks that has lent an air of active cooperation to its life and given members a "vested" interest in the service. We hope they have found satisfaction in this. We have been kept on wheels by the generosity of the various service clubs of the area. They never hesitate to meet our requests and we hope they feel some pride as they see the cars around the area and know they are a vital part of our equipment. With the whole Coast community we look forward to the completion of the nursing homes as a necessary part of medical services. We congratulate those responsible and thank them for the patient hard work. The government one on the beach front will also contain a respite day care centre. We have been part of a committee formed by Livingstone Shire Council concerned with housing needs, recreation for the disabled and a neighbourhood centre. We are also anxious that the partially disabled have hostel accommodation available for them. The hidden needs of the very young and the teenager often escape our notice. The medical problems of alcoholism and drug addiction and malnutrition of the "throw away" generation have not yet been addressed by our community of which we are a responsible part. I hope we can be open to whatever initiative may be available in these areas. Meanwhile as our society becomes more complex the work of the staff becomes more intense. Of the attending of meetings there is no end, yet each is a means of smoothing the way before us and the welfare of the individual is not lost. The Blue Nursing Service is a project of the Uniting Church. Through it we proclaim in all we do the good new that who we are is but a little of what Christ offers to all people.

In the name of Christ we go forward in hope and confidence. Sr Robinson said during the year the service visited 7744 patients which was a daily average of 30.73. There were 175 discharges and 63 patients on the books at the end of the year. Our three cars travelled a total distance of 43,024km, giving a daily average of 171.12km. Staffing has remained unchanged, with three full-time and three casual sisters. Under the home and community care programme we have been able to offer home respite care to eight of our families. The 1802 hours involved has given much needed relief to these families. As has become customary, we have participated in the work experience programme with students coming to us from Yeppoon High and Tambo, and home economics students have come in for information concerning their studies. Mrs Sue Stafford is the new nursing officer for our area from our Brisbane headquarters and we look forward to a visit from Sue in the future. We experience a good working relationship with community health, the local hospital, and the doctors, and for this I thank those involved. Thank you, too, to the ladies who help out in the office, to the ladies auxiliary for their hard but cheerful efforts, to all others in the community who have contributed to our work, to my fellow staff members, the committee, anti last but not least to our director Nyree. We continue to meet fortnightly with community health for case conference, the immunisation clinic is assisted monthly, and quarterly zone meetings have been held in Rockhainpton, Gladstone and Biloela. Staff attended a multiple sclerosis seminar in Rockhampton and I attended the annual nursing superintendents conference in Brisbane. The standard of these conferences seems to increase each year and the evidence of the high standard this year was commented on by the people manning the trade displays. Another comment by one of our of our guest speakers related to the cohesion of the group - there are great distances between our 63 centres throughout Queensland but we are a team. In conclusion, I would like to give a couple of quotes from the conference:- "Domiciliary nurses aim to provide the best quality of life possible for people given their level of disability," and "to enable people to stay in their familiar surroundings for as long as possible." As Blue Nurses, this is how we are endeavouring to serve the residents of the Capricorn Coast. Auxiliary president Mrs Watson said that this year, more than ever, the small band of women, who make up the auxiliary, has been helped by willing workers throughout the community. The auxiliary plans the functions and then contacts people wild because "it is fot blue nursing" cheerfully help. Members of the parent committee and SCOPE are our staunchest allies. Last year we catered for two luncheons with Mrs Kruger's fashion parade; we helped Sister Jo and the committee with the Zilzie Garden fete. The auxiliary also conducted two street stalls to pay for the ingredients for our luncheons. In all we have handed over 54000 to the parent committee. When door knock time,, came round, the auxiliary had a holiday 'because of the heavy rain. We were relieved td know that the door khock was successful. °Ps Some auxiliary members man the telephone for the sisters -40 • our auxiliary to It has been a.ON ginvilege rig Service. We support the Coast's Blue response we are very much aware tha?' which is given receive is a gauge of the aff to our sisters.

A MAJOR statewide smoking cessation programme called Cool Turkey has been launched in Queensland. The Queensland Department of Health, National Heart Foundation, Life. Be In It, Queensland Cancer Fund and ABC Radio have joined forces as co-sponsors of the programme. Cool Turkey is a do-it-yourself, 12-day programme to help smokers stop smoking-at home or at work. Each smoker who enrols in the course receives a 16 page quitting guide which complements daily broadcasts at 10.30am on ABC Radio (4QR and all regionals) starting October 17. Participants are also eligible to win a holiday for two to Heron Island, all expenses paid. CoolTurkey was broadcast on 440R on a trial basis in 1986. After three months the abstinence rate of those surveyed was 44 per cent. Enrolment is simple - send S5 with an enrolment form to the Brisbane address on the form (available from Yeppoon's Community Health Centre) and each participant will receive a 16 page booklet of helpful tips ready to read in conjunction with the radio programme starting on Monday, October 17. Enrolment forms are available from all Central Queensland Community Health Centres, Duaringa Shire office in Black-water and Cancer Fund office, Denham Street, Rockhampton. With more and more smoking bans being imposed and the price of cigarettes set to increase this maywell be the right time to make one of the most important decisions of a lifetime. Those who arc not able to participate in this programme and yet sincerely desire to give up smoking should register for the final Full Stop Course at Community Health for this year. This four week course of two sessions per week will start on Monday, November 14, at 7.30pm and finish on Thursday December 8. Inquiries or enrolments can be made on 27 1755.

Cancer appeal THE annual cancer fund doorknock appeal will be held on Sunday, October 9. Organisers said up to 30 drivers would be needed for a couple of hours on the day. Organiser Ernie O'Sullivan said the three secondary schools - St Ursula's College, St Brendan's College and Yeppoon State High had indicated theywould supply collectors and drivers were mainly needed. All funds raised from the appeal would go to the Queensland Cancer Fund where it will be used to help in research and purchasing equipment. Mr O'Sullivan said collections started about 8.30am. Anyone who can help can phone Mr O'Sullivan on 39 1327 or 39 1179.

New QCI development officer to build Coast membership base CENTRAL Queensland now has a new Queensland Confederation of Industry representative following the appointment of Coast resident Bill Thorp.. as membership development officer. "Mr Thorpe is well placed to develop our membership base in Yeppdon and Central Queensland by reason of his business background and managerial abilities," Central Queensland Confederation of Industry manager Graham Bloxsom said. "He will continue the good work started by John Kelly. "Bill would be able to offer Yeppoon business people an extensive range of business services covering industrial relations, award supply, business advisory services, education and training, marketing, promotion, research and export services. "In short, everything a business needs to know can be supplied by the confederation," Mr Bloxsom said. "We haven't become the largest business/ employer organisation in Queensland from sitting back and doing nothing for the employers of this State. "In .response to today's tough economic conditions we have just released a wide range of money saving services for members. Many

business people waste a lot of time, money and effort in attempting to get the best prices on deals available," he said . "What we have done for our members is to do the deals for them and stop the timewasting. We have used our clout and have produced for them a range of services that we believe offers them the best prices and services available. "Under the banner of what are our Sunservices and resulting from agreements reached with some of Australia's leading companies including Suncorp Insurance and Finance, BP, Shell, Bob Jane T Marts, Westpac, Budget Rent-a-car, Credit Collections Australia, American Express, Ford and Mitsubishi D'alers, we can offer substantial savings in such area as ... insurance, leasing finance, motor vehicles, tyres, petrol, distillate, travel and accommodation, bad debt collection, credit checks and credit references, hire cars to name but a few. "The QCI will not be competing with organisations such as tourism and development boards and chambers of commerce because the areas in which we operate are different and the services we supply are not available elsewhere," Mr Bloxsom said.

Chamber says regulations, costs 'seriously hinder' development of business district THE Capricorn Coast Chamber of Commerce and Industry's next meeting is on Tuesday, October 4 in Bayview Tower at 6.30pm. Chamber president Tony Millroy said the meeting would be procedural with general business and correspondence the main items in the agenda. Mr Millroy has written to Livingstone Shire Council ... to see how the parking proposal was going and also about a moratorium on parking contributions for the central business district. The parking proposals were forwarded to council a year ago. The chamber had surveyed most of the town's centre traders who almost unanimously asked for a one or two hour parking limit. Mr Millroy said council had appeared to agree with the proposals but the chamber has heard nothing and no action appears to have been taken. The chamber executive also believes the costs and regulations are "seriously hindering" the development of the business district. Mr Millroy said that if these could be waived for businesses other than new accommodation houses there may well be an upsurge in investing in the town's centre. "Many old premises suitable for commercial investment in the heart of Yeppoon are eyesores but the land on which they stand has great commercial value," he said. "Until, and unless, something was done about these potential development opportunities, the heart of commerce and industry on the Coast will not develop to anything like its full potential. "It is particularly annoying for many businesses to have to operate adjacent to dilapidated and eyesore buildings."

MLA: nursing home plans on show late November PLANS for the new State Government Nursing Home on Yeppoon's beachfront should be available for public scrutiny by the end of November. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton told the annual meeting of Yeppoon Hospital Auxiliary last Thursday night the commitment from Health Minister Leisha Harvey that the plans would be available for comment and input by community groups would be horo" oured. He told the meeting that both buildings on

the hiispital grounds, the present Community Health Centre and the matron's home, would need to be removed and would probably be available for public tender. Yeppoon Hospital Auxiliary president Jim Stephens was re-elected, Penny Stephens retired as secretary and was replaced by May Bailey. Brian Bartley was re-elected treasurer. The meeting decided it was too early to form an auxiliary for the nursing home, but one would be formed once construction of the home was underway.

LIVINGSTONE Shire Council will consider bicycle signs for the new four-lane highway on the Byfield-Yeppoon Road in the 1989/90 budget. The Main Roads Department told.council it wouldn't object to the road's sealed shoulders being used as cycle lanes as long as council erected and maintained signs. Shire engineer Pat Murphy said cycle-signing would cost about S3000 and hadn't been considered in this year's budget.

Byfield Park boost for conservation CONSERVATION in Central Queensland is set to get a boost as stage one of Byfield National Park is rapidly approaching gazettal. The 4090 hectares north of Corio Bay, the first stage of a national park that will ultimately cover some 13,000 hectares, now requires approval from Livingstone Shire Council before it can be approved by State Cabinet for gazettal. Member for Broadsound Denis Hinton said he was pleased the complex process of delineation of areas, surrenders of occupational licences and various department approvals was finally completed. "I have shepherded it personally through every department and am particularly grateful for the assistance of Environmental and Conservation Minister Geoff Muntz," Mr Hinton said. "I do not envisage any objections from council as it is incorporated in its town plan and council has always strongly supported the concept." The second stage of Byfield National Park will depend on drilling analyses now being conducted by RZ Minerals Limited. "This sand mining evaluation should be complete in about 6-12 months time and then the area not proposed for mining can be added. It is not possible to estimate that area at this stage," he said. "The previous name of Bayfield National Park has been changed to Byfield National Park so as not to create confusion with the neighbouring area of Byfield. I have carefully assessed district opinion of the change and encountered little resistance as it is a logical move. "It is an intensely beautiful area, an environmentally sensitive area with many unique varieties of flora. "The area needs the protection of the National Parks and Wild Life Service to ensure its beauty remains intact and to protect it for the enjoyment of the people. "The area has been plagued by fires in recent years caused mainly by careless camping, rubbish has been spread over the area, and sand dune erosion from 4WD vehicles has been considerable."

EXPO DONATIONS CII LIVINGSTONE ShirL, chairman Cr John Bowen nas congratulated the many Capricorn Coast residents who have either donated or promised money for the Expo drive. "Many non-tourist businesses have donated or promised money," he said. "It's great to see people getting behind the shire's push at Expo. I haven't had one refusal from a proprietor." Donations between $50 and 51000 have already been received. Cr Bowen said 58000 was the targeted amount to raise and he had been "overwhelmed" by the response.

STORYTELLING SESSI EMU Park Library will have storytelling sessions for under fives next week. Shire librarian Debbie Burn will read from picture books and tell stories interspersed with easy activities. Stories are drawn from both modern and traditional sources on an animal theme. She said all children and parents were welcome to attend. Sessions will be on Tuesday, October 4 and Wednesday, October 5 from 9.30am to 10.30am and l lam to midday. The sessions are being held as part of the Livingstone Shire library's major promotion of services to children. Many new children's

Transport objection LIVINGSTONE Shire Council has objected to b-double vehicles (prime mover and two semi-trailers connected by fifth-wheel couplings) travelling on Tanby Road but would agree to them on the Rockhampton/Emu Park.._", and Rockhamptun/Yeppoon Roads. The Transport Department applied to council for its commet its on the proposed routes and any conditions or restrictions. Shire engineer Jim Brown said both the Rockhampton/ Yeppoon and Rockhampton/ Emu Park Roads were wide enough and had reasonable horizontal and vertical alignments but this didn't apply to Tanby Road. The transport department will be told about council objection's as Tanby Road for b-double vehicle use but would agree with the other two as long as the State Government continued to upgrade the Rockhampton/Emu Park Road.

Immunisation backing LIVINGSTONE Shire Council has joined Unicef Australia to promote world immunisation. National Unicef director Robert Nestdale wrote to council for support. In a letter he said support would help the child survival revolution. Unicef is now promoting its world immunisation of children against the six preventable child killing diseases including measles, diphtheria, tuberculosis, whooping cough, tetanus and polio.

WHEL M CHAIRMAN Cr Bowen said a massive drive at Expo would be a far better proposition than any other form of advertising. "You have all those people on the one spot, what better way to promote Livingstone," he said. The money will be used to fund two publications, a colour four-page paper by the Capricorn Coast Mirror and a brochure printed by Capricorn Printing and Publishing, that will be handed out at Expo. Cr Bowen said a full list of donors will be printed in a later edition of the Capricorn Coast Mirror.

ON AT PARK LIBRARY books have been purchased and the Emu Park branch provides a pleasant place for children and parents to enjoy and choose books to take home. Emu Park branch hours are: Monday to Wednesday, 10am to midday and 2.30pm to 4.30pm; Saturday, 9.30am to 11.30am. Mrs Burn will also visit a playgroup at Cawarral and the Emu Park Pre-school for storytelling. A storytelling tour of other shire areas will be planned for early next year.

COMMUNITY involvement by Livingstone Shire residentswill be rewarded with Australia Day Awards presented by Livingstone Shire Council on January 26, 1989. Council has decided to continue its sponsorship of the awards through the Australia Day Council, Queensland and invites people to nominate shire residents who qualify within the guidelines. "Residents, clubs, groups and organisations are invited to submit more than one nomination," Livingstone Shire chairman Cr John Bowen said. "Nominations must include the nominated person's name, address and, if possible, phone number. A list, which can be as long or short as you wish, on what you think qualifies the person for any of the four awards must also be included. "The awards are meant to give recognition to people who would not normally receive public thanks," he said. "People who have been nominated in past years and not gained an award are still eligible." Nominations close on November 25, 1988 at the council chambers. A committee will select four shire residents from the nominations in the following categories: citizen's award, young citizen's award, and two sports medallions chosen from a participant, coach, official or administrator. The aim of the citizen's awards is to recognise outstanding contributions to the local community with the following guidelines. The citizen award is for a person 25 years or older on January 26, 1989. Young citizen award is for a person under 25 years on January 26, 1989. All persons whose contribution has oenefitted the local community, shall be eligible. One selection should be made in each category on the basis of outstanding service to the local community in any field considered appropriate by the selection committee. The aim of the sports medallions is to recognise outstanding achievement in, or contribu/ion to, the field of sport. In addition to the citizen award guidelines, the following guidelines apply: one medallion shall be awarded to a participant of 18 years of age or over who has a noteworthy record of achievement in sport. One medallion shall be awarded to a participant under 18 years of age who has a noteworthy record of achievement in sport. One medallion shall be awarded to a person of any age who has made a significant contribution to sport as a coach, official and/or administrator. All recognised sports shall be considered.

IT'S time to start thinking about the 1989 Australia Day Awards sponsored by Livingstone Shire Council through the Australia Day Council, Queensland. The awards are meant for people who don't usually get praised publicly... they-work away in the background helping the community and don't do it for praise, gain or ego trips. It isn't hard to nominate people (the story about how many awards and what for is on page nine this week). You must send or take a letter, it doesn't have to be typed, to Livingstone Shire Council before November 25. In the letter, which doesn't have to be enormous, you must explain why you think the person you have nominated deserves an award. They must be working for the community without payment. Put your chosen person's name, address and, if possible, phone number in the letter. You can nominate as many people as you wish, but they must be on separate pieces of paper. If you have nominated someone in the past and they didn't receive an award ... nominate them again. If you don't have enough information about the work your person has done ... sometimes that's okay, because the selection committee is made up of people from each Livingstone Shire division and they usually know what the people have done and can advise the rest of the committee. The Australia Day awards are important ... they are worthy testimonials to people who care. Don't put it off, sit down now and put pen to paper and nominate someone you know who deserves the honour. *** HAZARDS won the Yeppoon Netball Association absolute grand final on Wednesday night and Susan Blake was awarded man-ofthe-match. Nine-year-old Cameron Blake was the most promising player for the junior Aussie Rules, so his mother had to make sure it wasn't just the men who could win. Favourites were Pioneers Maroon and unfortunately they lost..Some Hazards players were still celebrating their wondrous win in the early hours of Thursday morning. *** BERT Moore of Kinka Beach thanks the kind woman who stopped and let him know about the injured black persian on the side of the road ... the cat will be okay and is getting lots of tender loving care. Thank.you again. *** YEPPOON Scout Group committee is looking for used scout and cub uniforms to build up a swap shop. Donations of uniforms would be welcome and if anyone would like to sell their own, the committee is prepared to do so on a commission basis. Contact Mery Leslie, 39 3317 or Bob Walls, 39 2207 if you are interested in donating, selling or buying. *** RED Cross president Kath Montefiore notifies that the next meeting is on Friday, October 21. The street stall is on Monday, November 21 and donations of food and other goods would be welcome. *** A DISCUSSION gathering is on at Laura Cogill's McLeod Street, Emu Park home for nursing mothers on Tuesday, October 4 at 9.30am. It is promotion month and members will discuss ways and means of reaching the community ... telling the community about nursing mo hers, explaining what it does, the products available, services it offers and the library that is available. *** THE October social of Yeppoon Pensioners League is in Yeppoon Town Hall on Tuesday the 11th starting at 1pm. A bus load of pensioners from North Rockhamton Pensioners League will attend the afternoon. Members can obtain their Christmas dinner tickets at the social. Names of members going on the October 20 bus will also be taken. *** TANYA Benson from Tanby Roses was guest speaker at Scope's action night ... but members said they will not put interflora out of business but were happily surprised at what scope (no pun intended) there is in leaves from the back garden. Scope raffle winner for Pineapple Festival entrant Julie Arnold is Del Roos. Members thank Julie for helping the club over the past few weeks and wish her luck on Saturday night. *** PROBUS Club of Yeppoon will have it business meeting on Thursday, October 6 at 10am with the venue Keppel Bay Sailing Club. The next social trip is on Saturday, October 15 to the Dreamtime Cultural Centre. Details will be available at the business meeting or from secretary George Hillier, 39 3361.

SATURDAY, October 1 is the final day of the Capricorn Coast Society of Arts annual exhibition in Yeppoon Town Hall. The exhibition is part of the Pineapple Festival and what a variety of media and techniques have been used by our Coast artists. Besides an extensive range of paintings, there are pottery, china painting and wood turning displays. If you miss the exhibition, you can see local work at the Paint Pot Gallery every day ... on the corner of Hill and Queen Streets, Yeppoon. *** YEPPOON Lioness Club member Jacky Hole was a guest speaker at the CWA Younger Set conference at Coolwaters on the weekend. Her subject was drama and the girls enjoyed the performances of Jacky, Chris and Eunice Coombes in a mime and a comedy. *** DO you remember a story in the Mirror a few weeks back about May Bailey making knee rugs for the new nursing home? Well, the repsonse has been great with brownies, guides, CWA members and stacks of Coast people making them. Mrs Bailey said some yarn has been donated but more is needed ... some of the people who would like to make more, aren't able to afford the yarn. You can leave it at the Mirror for collection. Two women are putting crochet edges on washers and a man has obtained some timber to make a few stools. And if you wonder what the woman who sits in Savemore's mall selling car tickets is doing ... she is also making knee rugs for the nursing home. In the old measure, four feet by three feet is large enough and they can be crocheted, knitted, anything else you can think of (I wasn't fantastic at sewing, knitting, crocheting at school or when growing up, so don't know all the terms) or the way Mrs Bailey does with chains. The nursing home will have 40 beds, so the more knee rugs the better. *** DATE CLAIMER: Sunday, October 2. St Faith's past pupils reunion. ***

.. Capricorn Coast Mirror September 30 - October 6, 1988 - 11S PAUL Sylvester had a surprise birthday party on Sunday at his home in Marina Avenue. I don't know how they organised it, but it worked, Paul had no idea until it burst upon him. His dad, Bud, worked it all out and 40 of Paul's friends gave him the surprise of his life. Another surprise was to be a photo in the Mitror, but unfortunately, the colour pic wasn't able to be used. Paul is a cement truck owner-driver with a contract with Yeppoon Readymix. He must be a nice guy because mate, and fellow workmate, Alan Dolbel composed the following poem to celebrate Paul's birthday.

Outrigger club gets first taste of competition at Sth Molle Is. THE Capricorn Coast Outrigger Club had its first taste of competition when team members pitted their paddles against other clubs at South Molle Island on the weekend. The club, still in its infancy, entered crews in the sprint and marathon (raced over 18km) races but missed out on major placings in both events. Club president Mike Cervai said in the marathon reigning Australian title-holders Hamiliton Island Club won by 100m from Airlie Beach and Ko-huna Resort. Coast was placed seventh out of the nine competing crews. Mr Cervai said Coast had been at a disadvantage in the marathon because the winning crews had nine-man teamswhile they only had six. "Each time our crew neared the leaders, three fresh paddlerswould take over and they'd draw away again," he said. "However, out of the three crews with six men Coast was a clear winner." Being a small club does have its disadvantages. Coast was unable to field a fully-rested team for the sprint while the larger clubs could race top teams. Airlie Beach took out the sprint title closely followed by Hamilton Island and Ko-huna Resort. Coast was placed ninth out of the 11 competing crews. Winners were determined by a time trial basis with five crews in one race and six in the other. The three fastest times were then awarded top places. Mr Cervai said the trip to South Molle also counted in the Grand Prix circuit. Coast is sitting on about one point in both sprint and marathon. The first three places are awarded 20, 10 and five points. Coast will now ready itself for the next closh at Lindemann Island on October 23. This time it is hoped a nine-man crew and two sprint crews can be entered in the competition, the club is still hampered in getting members because it owns one outrigger. The outrigger will be on display this Saturday during the Pineapple Festival. Mr Cervai said the outrigger would be set up on land next to the Commonwealth Bank. A weekend for two will be raffled and club shirts will also be on sale. It would be a great opportunity for Coast people to see an outrigger. Outrigger canoes have been in Queensland for the past six years. As yet no other Australian State races them. They originated in the Pacific Islands and at the last World Titles, which attracted 5000 paddlers, Tahiti won 27 gold medals. South Molle Island's race attracted about 1000 people and more than 100 paddlers.

the litima WHILE everyone is enjoying the Pineapple Festival spare a thought for the 10 puppies rescued from the Yeppoon tip and now residing at the council pound in Cordingly Street ... they've received the rough end of pineapple festivities. Through no fault of their own, they 're behind bars. Only six to eight weeks old they should be the object of loving care and attention, instead they're caged. Anyone who can give them a home can make their choice at the pound ... and all they will cost is a donation. The pups are good looking; their new owners will be proud of them. They are attractive animals which appear to be a cattle dog, terrier cross. But if you are thinking of giving them a home, make sure you are in a position to care for them. Don't build up their hopes by taking them home then leave them to get into mischief. So far, in just six or eight weeks, they have been born, found out what life is like at a rubbish dump ... and wound up behind bars in a cage. They deserve better. They're not breeeding stock so get them fixed. Have them immunised ... and ensure they do not roam the streets. Right now, they are the cutest things ... when they're howling at the moon, chasing children on bicycles and darting in and out of --traffic they lose their attractiveness. Give them a home ... but make it a good one! •

COAST bloke priced airfare to Adelaide to attend neice's wedding ... and nearly fainted when told it was more than $800 return. If he had acted faster after receiving wedding invitation from his brother, he could have saved quite a few bob by booking early ... but he didn't so that's that. Anyway, thinking over the cost of the fare, he decided to compare it with overseas travel charges. He found he could fly to New Zealand (land of the jandals) for a bit over $400 return, and that meant he could take his wife with him. Being a callous sort of bloke, he figured that if he didn't go to the wedding he could probably "forget" to send a present and the money saved on the present could be exchanged for flat rocks to buy things in NZ. He remarked on this to his wife and she liked the idea. It was developed to the stage of wondering whether to travel the North Island or the South Island of NZ ... and whether to hire a car, a camper van, or travel by bus. Then, when the ideas were generating considerable excitement, he remembered why he hadn't acted on buying a cheaper ticket to Adelaide when the wedding invitation first arrived ... he couldn't afford even the cheaper ticket. Now he's rather pleased with himself because of the amount of money he has saved by not going to Adelaide and buying a present and also by not going to NZ with his wife. Ah, it's thinking like his which makes this country great! •

BY the way, that bloke must have a sense of humour. As well as not attending the wedding nor sending a present, he also forgot to tell his brother he wouldn't be attending ... and he dreaded the inevitable phone call asking him why he hadn't responded. On Friday night, with the wedding set down for the next day, he received a phone call from one of his sisters who was already in Adelaide. She found out he wasn't coming; remarked that she hadn't seen a present from him; told him how upset his neice was that he was missing out on her wedding and hadn't even written or phoned. Then, to really make his skin crawl, she laid it on thick ... Aunty so and so and Uncle Fred and cousin so and so and her daughter and his other sister and the woman who used to live next door in Sydney and her new husband and her third son by her fourth husband and the old kindergarten teacher were all in Adelaide for the wedding. This was going to be bigger than Ben Hur and the Adelaide Grand Prix was the only event that was likely to have a bigger attendance this year. "And you're not here," she snarled through the phone. "It sounds like the perfect wedding with the one ingredient that guarantees success," he said. "I'm not there, so now you all have someone to talk about!!!" Now, there's a bloke who understands relatives! •

JOHN BRETZ of Murph's Sight 'n Sound gets a call from a woman in Rockhampton who asked could he put aside a particular item and she'd visit the Coast for it. To save her the he said he'd drop it into her home that night when he was going to Rockhampton. When he handed the item to the woman at the door that night she asked had he brought any change. He had change for $50 ... the woman gave him S20 ... the item cost $19.99. He gave her the one cent change ... and left!
